Summertime means travel! I can't wait to head out. This summer we're heading to Alaska. The trip starts in Tennessee, loops into Virginia before going north. (Because I can't seem to get from Point A to Point B anymore). It's a cross-continent trip that will be filled with memorable moments. But as idyllic as it sounds the reality is that life is never simple.
First I have to finish moving. Then there will be the unpacking and getting set up. There's a mandatory conference for work that I have to attend in June in North Carolina. Then, there's a trip to Kentucky. So much is going on that I get exhausted thinking about it.
The move is a job transfer. North Carolina was in my plans. Kentucky wasn't but it's always a blessing to see my daughter and son-in-law there. But, it's a whirlwind!
However, the comfort is that God is with me. I draw strength from that. If He can move mountains, surely he can help me move a pile of packing boxes and get everything done! My stress is through the roof, but I know that Jesus can handle it. He promises to work for good in the lives of His people. I don't know for sure what the future holds, but I know that I can rely on him to walk with me. That thought brings me comfort - a whole lot of comfort.
We'll talk more after some of these things are done. Right now, I have to find the packing tape. Talk to you soon!
